St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin 2018

Dear friends of St. Patrick’s Festival Berlin,

We are delighted to announce that SPFB is officially BACK WITH A BANG on Saturday, March 17th, 2018!!! #patisback

We have joined forces with Urban Spree in Friedrichshain to host our special day in March!

Urban Spree, the cultural icon on the old RAW Grounds beside Warschauer Str, is the perfect venue for our comeback special! We’ll have Irish streetfood vendors serving delicious Irish drinks and food, live music, Irish dancing, and so much more. Make sure you join our Facebook event to stay up to date with announcements!

Unfortunately we didn’t receive permission for the parade this year, but not to worry! We’ll open the gates at Urban Spree from 13:00 so rugby fans will be able to watch the first of 3 live games in the 6 Nations Championship. The highlight will be England vs Ireland (k.o. 15:45) shown on big screens.

We have invited Setanta Berlin GAA to build an indoor GAA section showcasing the very best of Gaelic football and hurling. We will have kids activities, such as Irish Storytelling, arts and crafts, face-painting and the very special opportunity to dance with our lovely Irish dancers.

We are also very pleased that members of Berlin-Ireland Pro Choice Solidarity will be joining us to raise awareness about the upcoming abortion referendum in Ireland and to promote the #hometovotecampaign.

We have a packed schedule of diverse, Berlin-based Irish musicians for the FREE concert in the garden. 4 Minute Mile are sure to set the tone early when they kick things off at 14:00. We will then have the opening ceremony at 15:00 featuring the incredible dancers from Irish Beats Dance Company Berlin. St. Patrick himself is also due to make an appearance 🙂

2-piece Irish folk group Slí na Sláinte will have a more calming influence on proceedings when they take to the stage at 16:00. After the Irish rugby match (17:30), headline act Joey Ryan and his band will take to the stage performing a mix of his own material as well as Irish rock classics. Kilkelly will then perform some folk and blues numbers before Seán Óg and David Flowerkraut treat us to some classic Irish ballads.

The Afterparty featuring a traditional Céilí Mór Irish dance followed by renowned Irish DJs follows on from the concert and will keep revellers moving until the wee hours 🙂

Odd Couple – YADA YADA Tour 2018

Ein beiläufiges Yada Yada und die Garageband Odd Couple erweitert ihr eklektisches Kaleidoskop um ein paar Diamanten mehr. Für Schubladendenker sind die Wahlberliner nichts. Die ostfriesischen Experten für kuriose Gegensätze sind nun offiziell ein Trio und innovieren weiterhin nonchalant das Deutsche Rockgenre. Neue Deutsche Welle, Garage, Glam-, Space- und Krautrockanteile landen mit emphatischen Zeitgeistlyrics im Mixer. Alltagswucht verarbeitet sich in kosmische Weltfluchten. Dehn schnauzt und stöhnt den Generation Y Schmerz in einer Mischung aus Lenny Kravitz und Kilmister heraus, Kreft könnte jederzeit für ein Revival von The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band einspringen und Wild Card Schulze sorgt für die richtige Prise Wahnsinn. Experimenteller kann es in einer Garage nicht zu gehen.
